this is the largest minimum wage pay increase in the nation. now, again, voters approved measure d in the fall. that's why the $2 increase is happening. this is of course happy news for the thousands of minimum wage workers in the city. but san jose's mayor is concerned that some businesses might not be able to handle the hike. he is worried people could lose their jobs. >> as the minimum wage goes up, small businesses in particular will make accommodations. some will absorb the cost, some will pass it on to their customers and some will have to decrease jobs and lay people off. >> a campaign is also kicking off today to encourage people to spend their extra money from those earnings in the city. the slogan is, earn and spend in san jose. it will be displayed in business windows. the minimum wage in california is $8 an hour. in san jose, elissa harrington, kpix 5. >> so it's a little more than california's average but how does san jose's pay compare
5:02 am
with the national minimum wage? >> reporter: michelle, the national is $7.25 an hour. but there is a bill in congress that would raise that to $10.10 an hour. so if that goes through, that would raise the minimum wage again here in san jose. >> all right. interesting. elissa harrington, thank you. 5:04. tonight another bay area city could join the list of those with plastic bag bans. redwood city council will vote on a ban that would apply to most retailers, restaurants and nonprofits to be exempt. plastic would still be okay for protecting produce, newspapers and dry-cleaning. an environmental report found redwood city residents use 42 million plastic bags a year. thomas frazier is set to begin work today as the oakland police department's new compliance director. a u.s. district court judge appointed him to oversee the opd's reform effort. he is the former police commissioner in baltimore, maryland and former didn'tty chief in san jose. his job is to get oakland

5:04 am
>> you will want to. the better part of the week looking good as high pressure dominates the weather again. this ridge looking very strong outside. this morning, we are starting out with a couple of patches of fog at the coast, otherwise clear in the valleys. you see that clockwise rotation in the atmosphere of the clouds. that's going to be a hint of where that ridge of high pressure is. so settling in nicely along the west coast now. we are looking at great weather ahead. we have mostly clear skies inland. temperatures cold in the valleys. 38 in livermore. 37 in santa rosa. 45 in san jose. and 44 degrees in san francisco. by this afternoon, though, we're enjoying plenty of sunshine and these temperatures just beginning to warm up. widespread 70s in the valleys. 71 degrees in concord. 70 in san jose. about 58 a little sea breeze into san francisco but about 64 degrees in oakland. and warmer weather is on the way. we'll talk more about that in a moment. right now let's check the roads with elizabeth. >> we have delays right now coming into fremont. so three of the left lanes are blocked on northbound 680 because of this overnight
5:05 am
roadwork and it's not scheduled to wrap up until about 6:00 this morning. so again that's northbound 680 between mission boulevard south and mission boulevard north. in the meantime if you want to ride bart, so far we checked in with bart 38 trains on time. looking outside right now, a lot of the overnight roadwork is picked up including 880 by 66 all lanes open toward downtown oakland this morning. no metering lights and no delay on the bay bridge getting into san francisco. right now bridge crews are working to clear the stall on westbound 92 on the incline section of the san mateo bridge. so as you can see, it's still early so it's not causing a delay. that is traffic. back to you guys. >> thank you. less than a week after a deadly lion attack, a central valley animal sanctuary is back open. project survival's cat haven observed a moment of silence for diana hanson yesterday. the 24-year-old was killed last wednesday and park owners said

5:07 am
known as the conclave begins. some names of front-runners have emerged. >> a week ago we would have said wow we have a lot of work to do, but now you see a sense of resignation and trust and faith. >> reporter: the conclave seems to be shaping up like a balance between supporters of the vatican bureaucracy known as the curia and outsiders who want reform. the roman-based cardinals are reportedly backing odila scherer, the archbishop of sao paulo although known in the curia and on the commission which oversees the vatican bank. on the other side of the ledger is cardinal angelo scola, although he is italian, he is based in the law and is considered somewhat who would clean out many of the roman insiders. if either of those names should falter, experts say there is a real possibility an american could rise to the top. boston cardinal sean o'malley and new york cardinal timothy dolan are the leading u.s. papal contenders. vinita nair, cbs news, vatican city.

5:14 am
to see some brake lights so the drive time is still in the green up to 20 minutes and once you get towards the dublin interchange, things pick up a bit. this is causing some delays as well if you are heading into fremont northbound 680 three left lanes are closed until 6 a.m. between mission boulevard south and mission boulevard north. they have been doing some roadwork in this area for a while, as well. we saw this last week. so again, expect some slight delays. elsewhere the golden gate bridge is moving fine this morning. in one of our earlier traffic reports, we saw some lane change trucks driving by. we have some flashing bites. maybe they are going home. but for the most part. all lanes are open. and things look good for the drive from marin county to san francisco. coming up, we'll check mass transit. in the meantime, lawrence has some good weather news for us. >> yeah. great weather news. going to see a lot of sunshine around the bay area the next couple days. these temperatures very spring lied as we'll see high pressure with some temperatures near 80
